BC Racing coilovers

So FCP Euro sells them.
EVERYTHING FCP sells comes with lifetime warranty.

How is this not a worthwhile purchase?

For someone who just wants some mild adjustability and DD's the car. This seems like a best option, no?


So I have long winters and lots of salt. If the adjusters seize I just return for new. And really that's the only issue I've ever had with cheap coilovers. I've never blown a seal or lost fluid. Just corrosion problems.

BC has their own Lifetime Warranty, which probably (definitely) plays into the equation for FCP.

That said, I'm now an Ohlins snob

rather go with a spring and shock combo, bc are good entry level while a bilstein of koni yellow with performance springs is similar in price but you will have a better ride quality and better handling capabilities
